    I m a writer by day, college instructor by night and a late sleeper on weekends I grew up reading Greek mythology, bringing home stray cats and making up stories about bodies in the basement From an early age, my family knew I would either end up as a writer or the old lady with a hundred cats As luck would have it, I married a man with allergies so writing it was I started out writing romantic comedy for Harlequin and Kensington, and made the leap to mainstream in 2009 with Getting Rid of Rosie, a paranormal comedy When I m not writing or teaching, I like to canoe, cross country ski and watch movies I usually have three books on the go as well one by the bed, one in the bathroom, and one in the family room At least two of those are usually research books for whatever I m working on at the time I think that half the appeal of writing is the research

    Ever heard of a pot-smoking ghost? I never can resist a good ghost story. Getting Rid of Rosie by Lynda Simmons is a most enjoyable read. Pub owner, Sam Marcello, is content for the most part running her pub, The Silver Swan. Although her love life is a desert, she has gotten her business act together when her ex-boyfriend (Michael), the ghost of his dead wife (Rosie), his daughter (Julie) and his brother (Derek) roll into town. Crazy antics ensue when Sam’s quirky employees get involved. Her [...]

    As I personally told Lynda, I used to think people who laughed while reading books were weirdos. Reading Getting Rid of Rosie turned me into one of those weirdos, as I have since then started noticing the humour in other books, whether intended or simply the clever twist of events that occur. I was expecting a romantic comedy when I first picked this up, but my skeptisism was removed when I got further into it, learning it was more about best-friendship. The one between Sam and Rosie is quite th [...]

    I know -- the cover and the blurb scream "This is silly!" But believe me; I've read or listened to all Sophie Kinsella's novels, so I know what silly is, oh I do. Silly is adult women doing things so ridiculously unreasonable and straight-out stupid that it makes you wonder how the hell did they get to have respectable jobs with actual responsibilities. They get themselves in cringe-worthy situations, but of course, there is method to their madness, and at the end they emerge victorious in an in [...]

    As a Canadian writer with novels and shorts set in the GTA, Winnipeg and the rural farming communities of Manitoba, it was cool to come across an author who has successfully sold stories set in Toronto, and in the case of Getting Rid of Rosie, in the heart of the Danforth with a side trip to Huntsville. And sold it to an American publisher, no less.Lynda Simmons writing is fresh, her settings vivid, her characterizations full of life, complexity and even a little contradiction. Throw in a ghost [...]

    Sam's best friend, Rosie, married Sam's fiance. Years later, Michael walks back into Sam's life and she finds out that Rosie is dead. When Sam and Michael try to get back together, Rosie objects. Sam can see Rosie and hear Rosie when no one else can. With the help of her grandmother and friends, Sam tried to get rid of Rosie's ghost. Lots of fun to read.

    Didn't end the way I expected but still ended good. The interactions between all of the characters were for me engrossing. I had a hard time putting it down; especially in later chapters. Would read again.

    A book about love and friendship, lost, regained and lost again. Humorous with great heart and a ghost. What could be better.

    Fun book to read

    This book was very entertaining but got too corny at the end and was way too predictable. I liked the different story but that's it.

    Karen
    Enjoyed the story. Look forward to reading more books from this author.

    Such a fun read, and a great lit book that was a great shift from her romance books. Lynda is so funny and has a distinct voice!

    Fun book. Very different premise than anything I have read before. I was hooked in beginning, slow moving in middle with a strong ending. I want to give it 3.5 stars.
